Good God Google! ( 21:34:15 SunJun 2 2002 )

This morning, I went to my board and found one guest: googlebot.

A few hours later, I returned. Two more guests. All googlebots.

I just went back again, and now there are NINE!

:eek: Is this normal???

I've never even submitted the board to a search engine, unless I accidentally hit the button in the Admin screens (which I highly doubt).

This gets posted about a lot here at this time of every month. It's perfectly normal, you can have loads of googlebots. :smile: Even if you didn't submit - they follow links too, from other places. http://google.com/bot.html .

OK! Thanks!

I was afraid that someone was pulling a prank on me! (You'd be surprised what some people do. Or maybe not!)

Well, if it's a large number (look at this board for instance) and you think it's unlikely to be your members all online at one time, then it could be the google bots. :smile:

Otherwise, probably not - unless maybe you catch em in the act! :lol: not even sure about that though...

They don't add you straight away after spidering, it can take a month or two. :smile:

Hmm, I think at one point the board I administrate at had 17 on, but all you have to do is click the IP and it should tell you its a googlebot.

But 92? Thats not healthy.

Phantom..do you have a site meter on your website? If not you should get one. You can click on referred by and it will show if it came from a google listing ..and what they were searching for. :wink:
